Turning TFA into reality: looking back on 2018 and ahead to 2019

Earlier this year we celebrated the first anniversary of the entry into force of the World Trade Organization’s (WTO) Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA). At the time I challenged the private sector to take a more active role in delivering vital trade facilitation reforms. As we near the end of the year, I am happy to see our private sector partners stepping up and increasingly willing to engage and participate actively alongside governments. Together we are creating solutions to make trade faster, simpler and cheaper.
